Marks Blond Project (Bern) - feat. Bury the Jumbo


„The Jumbo is dead - let's bury the Jumbo“

The project Bury the Jumbo is bridging the gap of virtual space with a symbol which is also the identity of the community. A Boing 747 Jumbo-Jet.
The BTJ-Community will carry a 17 meter long coffin through the public space of the Art Basel, according to the motto "The Jumbo is dead - let's bury the Jumbo"
The kiosk will turn into a counter cover in “Blond Blumen”(“Blond Flowers”), which the audience can place in the coffin along with personal farewell messages before the funeral march.
The coffin, which according to the community can be seen as a symbol of the whole art world, is the Western Wall and a letter box in one
On the homepage www.burythejumbo.com the action is announced and is open to everyones participation and involvement.
